[TOKYO] Japanese stocks edged higher in volatile trade on Tuesday as a pause in sterling's fall offered some respite, but gains were capped by weakness in automakers.

Investors remained cautious on growing worries about the global economic fallout from Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

The Nikkei ended 0.1 per cent higher at 15,323.14 after falling to as low as 14,987.79 earlier.

The broader Topix shed 0.1 per cent to 1,224.62 and the JPX-Nikkei Index 400 declined 0.1 per cent to 11,057.32.
